This is our first 7minutesolar Photo of The Day: POTD. Wednesdays will be Wind Power photos (like today) and the weekend will have the Solar Sundays POTD.
The POTDs are a photographs that capture an aspect of the new energy revolution with accompanying information from the photographer and links to more of their work. If you know of a photographer (maybe even you!) that has a great shot of solar installations or wind farms or anything broadly related to new energy, let us know by using the contact form at the bottom of this page.
This dramatic photograph was taken by Dimitry Anikin of VIenna, Austria. You can see the high resolution image on the photography site Unsplash.
It was taken near the small town of Mistelbach in the Austrian State of Lower Austria, not far from the Czech border. I myself live in Vienna, and try to explore landscapes around and nearby the city. What caught my eye about the scene was the impressive size of these wind turbines, and the dramatic lighting created by the passing clouds.
